    ;-) Because those who are near and dear to me know how directionally challenged I am....

    If I wanted to give my parent's (the one's going next week) directions on how to walk from The Boardwalk to DHS, I would say....

    ...fill in the blank here with small words and perhaps landmarks...


    Thank you :D

    As you exit the BWI from the main lobby to the boardwalk (NOT THE DRIVE TO CAR PARK) take a left, and head for Jelly Rolls. Just beyond Jelly Rolls take a hard left on to a sidewalk that runs along the canal. Follow that sidewalk until you come to the entrance to DHS. Easy Peasy!

    Of course you could do what I do with Tink's directions and immediately forget them and nearly walk straight into the Beach Club hot tub. :D

    As far as expletives go, that word is fairly mild over here although it does have an alternative meaning.

    :yes: I see. Well, I don't really, but I do take your word for it. You know, because it is slang it well may have a less than polite meaning here too. I've learned that about some words through the years. :D

    So, no offense intended to any of our UK members. In my limited sphere, it means to bop someone with something... nothing of an off color nature at all. It well may have that connotation, but I'm not aware of it...

    OK. I'm gonna' shut up now. :spring: :sorry:
